    A superb presentation, just like sitting in a university classroom. I wish I had the coding knowledge to go beyond the 'sensible' limits Doug imposed on his talk. Obviously there's a lot of horsepower under Doug's hood, but I don't have the skills to make use of it. So WHEN (not 'if') the time comes for me to throw in the towel and consult a pro, guess who'll get my business... I'll make the SENSIBLE CHOICE <grin>.

    Thanks for making the presentation available online - and thanks, Ryan, for the video.

    I was out of town but watched the recording. What a great presentation! I learned a lot and downloaded the slides for future reference. Thanks to Doug and whoever (Ryan?) who recorded and made it available.

    Sorry, Joe and I didn't make it last night. We started out okay, then the car started chugging. We live way out West Omaha (Waterloo & Valley). Decided we better not chance it, especially in thick traffic. Hope to see you next time!

    Still hoping to attend - have an obligation that could make getting there impossible. I have been looking forward to this meeting and topic for two months .. ugh. See how it goes.
